Museum Open to Harvard Faculty, Students, and Staff with Valid Harvard ID

The Harvard Museums of Science & Culture (HMSC)—including the Peabody Museum—are open for limited in-person visitation solely for Harvard faculty, students, and staff with a valid Harvard ID starting September 1, 2021.

Guests of Harvard ID-holders are not allowed at this time. Harvard Faculty who wish to schedule a class visit may email

We are working with Harvard University on a phased reopening and look forward to sharing details for public access soon. Sign up for our enews to receive the latest updates. Check the HMSC website for all four museums' visitation hours. As we prepare to reopen our doors, we encourage you to enjoy the museum at home with new digital content, including virtual programs, tours, podcasts, and coloring pages on HMSC Connects!  See Peabody Museum Online Resources for online exhibits, videos, 3D models, and to search the collections. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the museums soon!
